Cool as a Cucumber Cocktail

This week we’re featuring one of our favorite summer cocktails, our Cool as a Cucumber cocktail! When it’s hot as blazes outside, this cocktail is best enjoyed in a rocking chair on the front porch in the shade. Cucumbers, with their extremely high water content, are nature’s version of a vegetable air conditioner. A splash of pineapple will transport you (in your mind, at least) to your own private tropical island.

This recipe makes 1 cocktail.



Finely dice the cucumber slices. Muddle the cucumber and lime wedge in a 10-ounce Collins glass. Add the gin, St-Germaine, Malibu, and pineapple juice. Add the crushed ice and top with the tonic water. Garnish with a slice of cucumber and serve.

Love drinks, but don’t want to have to make them? Stop in or make a reservation to drink at the Tupelo nearest you to try one or all of our craft cocktails!
